My SIL had her first baby today and I'd like to bring a gift to the hospital but i don't have any ideas.

Something for her? Something for the baby? I'm drawing a blank...

  • Both.. I'd bring her something clever like a little basket of "mommy must haves" Coffee, new mommy mug, I'd print little babysitting coupons, offering to babysit, or to cook a meal. A sleeping mask, and ear plugs...lol kidding...... Just something different. And for baby, maybe something personalized, like a frame with her name and birthday on it, or a blanket, even just a gift card or two from babies r us and walmart or target so she can get what she needs when she needs it. Good luck and congrats for your new niece.

  • for the new mom I would bring either a new photo album, baby book, gift cards for meals so when they go home,something to eat since hospital food not the greatest, for baby I would bring gift card for diapers since would still have to bring home, a parent mag, I saw at target some cute baby outfits that say babies first easter would be cute. Or wait till they come home from the hospital and cook them all a home cooked meal.

  • My cousin brought me a huge cup of my favorite coffee (White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks) after my daughter was born. Bring her something she was craving while pregnant but couldn't have! At that particular moment, I loved that cup of coffee more than my husband! lmao
